‘Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves’ First Reactions: Very Funny, A Hoot, Silly

The co-director says they did the game justice but who had goofy fun playing D&D?

'Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves' First Reactions: Very Funny, A Hoot, Fun, Silly

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves premiered tonight at the SXSW convention in Austin, Texas where the first reactions are in and offer the flick is very funny, a hoot, fun, and silly.

As we’ve said before, worth a mention is that all the first reactions to movies that hit social media are always on the positive side so bear that in mind (they raved about Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania and even praised Thor: Love and Thunder).

Reactions and reviews are also comparing the film to James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy movies, just like I said, so take that for what it’s worth.

Co-director Jonathan Goldstein also said at SXSW that “nobody had done [a film adaptation of the game] justice,” so I guess he means he did D&D justice.

Goldenstein also said when it comes to the fantasy genre that includes Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, “there’s not a lot of laughs and there’s not a lot of fun, and that’s what we hoped we did with this film.”

I played D&D as a kid and don’t remember any goofiness, but maybe they played the game in a different way.

Speaking of, they also recently said they like making men look like a joke and find it “fun and fresh.”

Again, I don’t recall playing D&D where the men just stand by and watch while the women do all the fighting, which is what early remarks said about the film.

I wonder what would happen if one of these reviewers actually came out and blasted the movie in an early reaction? I think we know the answer.

Maybe it’s a good movie and a lot of fun, but it’s not D&D to me so it might not be my cup of tea. Let me know if it’s any good as I’m just tired of the dumbed-down goofiness and jokey joke one-liners.

How many of these reviewers actually played D&D?

Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves opens on March 31, 2023.
